Color Our Collections 2018

#ColorOurCollections is a week-long coloring fest on social media organized by libraries, archives, and other cultural institutions around the world. Using materials from their collections, these institutions are sharing free coloring content with the hashtag #ColorOurCollections and inviting their followers to color and get creative with their collections.

We’re joining the fun with a book of coloring pages based on the John Tinney McCutcheon Collection, a group of original editorial cartoons drawn by McCutcheon between 1904 and 1944. Most of the cartoons were published daily in the Chicago Tribune. Others were submitted to the Tribune for publication but were never printed in the newspaper, and have not been accessible outside of the library until now. These cartoons are in the process of being made available online in the MU Digital Library.

Download this year’s coloring book below, or browse our offerings from previous years.
